What a surprise, there has been a delay! I posted about needing a new server due to the size of the new work. In total the new server will cost 4 times what we had budgeted, so we’ve needed to do some manoeuvres to slot that into our business plan. The final hurdle of that was overcome today so we’re hoping that the implementation of this will occure within the next fortnight. I’ll have more details tomorrow but it’s looking like an early October launch. Likely improvements:

  • Improved search algorithm (see earlier posts)
  • 26 Baby TRIPs (see earlier posts)
  • Rewording and re-jigging of categories. ‘EB Synopses’ and ‘Systematic Reviews’ will be merged and be the top results category. The ‘Clinical calculators’ category will be re-named ‘More’ (making a new tagline TRIP, Evidence Base and More). The ‘More’ refers to a ‘sort of’ miscellaneous, ‘sort of’ web 2.0 category. Wikis will go in there, as will a load of videos, we’re hoping to get slidecasts added. To help keep things relevant we’ll allow clinicians and information specialists to suggest content and add it via the Gwagle interface. We’ll keep this quite controlled to start with and see what happens!

Sorry for the delays!
